p.3 The Marine Agitation - petition against canal tolls and Montreal harbor dues. (details)

The schr. New Dominion of Hamilton, and schr. Dauntless, both B-1 vessels in good condition, are offered for sale at $3,000 each.

Wind Wafts - The schooners Tranchemontagne, Riverside, and Annie Falconer were towed down to Dead Man's Bay today to load ice. All the vessels which preceeded them there have been loaded and are being brought back to the city in tow. The ice broken is from 12-14 inches thick, and as clean through as crystal.

Ships articles, ruled neatly and bound in books of 25, can be purchased at the Whig office.

The schooner Gaskin and bark Arabia, old Kingston boats, have been sold to Toledo parties, who design them for barges.

Vessel Sales - The Robert Gaskin has been sold for a sum not stated. She is classed B-2, and carries about 22,000. The barque Arabia has been sold for $3,000. She is classed B-1, about 20,000 bushels capacity. The Dauntless, of Oakville, has changed hands at $2,000.

Demand For Ice - There is still a desire to load as much ice as possible, the presumption being there will be a genuine famine in the west. This afternoon the Pierrepont was engaged in breaking a passage for 4 vessels, the owners of which desire to load the congealed fluid at Dead-Man's Bay. The captain of the schr. Olive Branch has been offered $2 per ton for a cargo, to be delivered at Charlotte.
